Child Dedication


We believe Psalm 127:3, which says “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.” Parent/Child Dedication is a time for us to celebrate and thank God for the gift of your children. It’s also a time for you, as parents, to commit to model what following Jesus looks like and to raise your children to understand that they are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, to believe that the Bible is absolute truth, and to know the importance of committing to a community of faith through the local church.


During the dedication service, parents promise before God, their family, and the church to raise their child in a God-honoring way. In some ways, it’s more of a dedication for you as a parent to make a commitment before God and others in your parenting.  But it’s also a dedication for us as a church to commit to partner with you.  We are so honored to partner with you in your journey as parents. We want to be a consistent source of encouragement, strength and resource as you raise your child in the way that God commands us in Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way that God commands, and when he is older, they will not forget”.

Because parents are the primary spiritual developers for their children, we ask that you commit to the following before dedicating your child:

1. Parent(s) have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

2.Parent(s) are regular attenders of Hope City Church’s weekend services and are following Christ in their own life.

3.Parent(s) agree with our church’s beliefs and values, which can be found in our Statement of Faith
